that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> why did you pick her to tell us about benghazi? what does she have to do with benghazi? did anybody ask her for additional security? she's the united nations ambassador. >> you don't end up on every single major sunday show without affirmatively putting yourself out there of wanting to carry forward a message on behalf of the administration. >> i don't think we are doing very well in the u.n., quite frankly. they did a good job on libya, but china and russia are walking all over us. i think she is more political operative than anything else, when it comes to benghazi. >> one of the questions here is really who in different parts of our government knew what about what happened? knew the faces about what happened in benghazi on 9/11 and did they share it with everybody else? >> obviously, it's very troubling that ambassador rice' rendition turned out to be incorrect. and we need to get to the bottom of that. >> you want to get to the bottom of benghazi, have
graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> tonight, congressman tim ryan of ohio on the president's middle class rallying cry. jonathan alter on the epic throwdown with john mccain. >>> plus, the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senate -- >> yes, you did! >> heidi hitekamp joins me for an exclusive interview. and republicans in ohio haven't learned anything. tonight, state senator nina turner on today's republican vote to defund planned parenthood. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. absent of arrogance, president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first news conference since winning the presidency once again. it's the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shou
you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style hearings on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations that i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senat
the first term. jonathon? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham said they want watergate-style hearings on the attack on the consulate in benghazi and if you nominate susan rice as secretary of state they will do everything they can to block the nomination. he says he simply doesn't trust her. >> i won't comment at this point on various nominations that i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator tbram and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a pre
a listen. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmurch her reputation is outrageous. jenna: senator john cornyn of texas what's elected to be the senate's minority whip, a bit of a promotion if you will. thanks to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna, good to be with you. jenna: your reaction on what the president had to say yesterday in. >> i thought it was an overreaction to say the least. congress has a constitutional responsibility under our system of checks and balances to consider any nominations to an executive branch position, like secretary of state. the president knows that. i used to be a lecturer in constitutional law. i was kind of surprised at how defensive i was about this. it's pretty clear that ambassador rice misled congress and the american people about what happened. the q
, lindsey graham has been outspoken for a while, but jeb bush, perhaps john boehner, but i think it's not so simple as having leaders in the party come out and say, oh, we're going to move to the center on this issue. the republican party has spent so long, number one, purifying its representatives from primaries on the right, from club for growth and tea party, and number two, really demagoguing on the issue and calling for anything that provides a path for citizenship amnesty. it's not just the republican leaderships or representatives that were the problem. when i ran for congress in virginia, we found immigration wasn't the number one issue but for republican voters it was an extremely intense, emotional issue. i don't think it's so simple as just the leadership coming out and saying this is where we want to move on immigration. what do you think? >> i don't think it's that simple, and i think the tea party in particular has a tone in it and content in it that's tree extremely skeptical about immigrati immigration. most of the tea party people were re-elected, not all of them. this is a
that the general's testimony is still very essential to this investigation. here's senator lindsey graham. >> i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. martha: senator graham went on to say he is focusing on the four americans killed in benghazi and quote, we have a national security failure in the makings. lots of questions here. we'll examine them throughout the next two hours. gregg: that's right. we're also getting some new videotape of a home of the women at the center of this scandal. cameras catching shots of the charlotte, north carolina, house where paula broadwell lives with her husband. she spent a year with david petraeus writing the biography, all in. she is a 40-year-old graduate of u.s. military academy. an army reserve officer. she is married with two young sons. martha: petraeus's resignation raises a flood of questions about the intel community, the timing of this announcement and the investigation into benghazi. just a couple minutes we'll be joined live by former cia director m
. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. megyn: but if the president believed that their best intel five days after the attack suggested the video was to blame, then why did we see this moment in the presidential debates, the second one, where he claimed he was calling this terror from day one? >> i think it's interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack he went in the rose garden and said that this was an act of terror. you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration. is that what you're saying? >> please proceed, governor. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the president 14 days before the he called the act of terror -- >> he did, in f
pain, he says we'll see more stress over the next couple of weeks. graham spanier was arraigned today on charges he tried to cover up allegations that jerry sandusky was sexually abusing boys on the school campus. among the charges, obstruction of justice, endangering the welfare of children and purgery. bail is $125,000. but it is unsecured, so that means he doesn't have to pay it unless he fails to show up for a court date. he will not be allowed to travel outside the state without the court's permission. >>> after meeting with with the president, one militant group in mali is urging other groups to start a political dialogue and it's an important group, at least from our understanding when we were covering the story. the armed group is one of many to have taken over the northern part of mali. what does that mean? state department spokesman welcomed the announcement that says the group has only talked the talk and need to walk the walk and actually work on a deal. it's been 461 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. it is time to ask what are we going to do to get it back.
. >> republican senator lindsay graham on "face the nation" this morning, molly ball, take a listen and see what he said on the other side. >> we have a national security failure in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi, before, during and after the attack, if general petraeus doesn't testify. from my point of view, it's absolutely essential that he give testimony before the congress. >> molly, how is this benghazi back and forth likely to work out in light of these petraeus developments? >> well, i think we have to remember how much we still don't know. we still, i mean the petraeus story just breaking on friday, and details still coming out about what was discovered and how. i mean we originally thought that this was more about classified information and now it seems like it's more about harassment. i think we have to be sort of humble in the face of all the facts that we still don't have. i think a.b. is right that at this point, they look like two separate stories. it doesn't look like they're entangled, except to the extent that petraeus is a pl
a consensus. it sounds like schumer and graham will be working on some kind of plan. >> bill: our numbers are so short. one of the first things george w. bush did was put in an immigration reform package in front of the republicans and congress killed it because the talk show hosts went crazy with amnesty. remember that. >> oh, yes. >> bill: big protests. and trent lott and others just -- had just dropped it. >> i think they feel now they have no choice. they either do it or they're done. >> bill: so think progress is going through the other things on your site. has your name on it. texas megachurch pastor. >> oh, boy. you know you're in trouble. robert jeffers what's his latest? >> this is a guy you'll remember, at the voter summit back in 2011 was a big rick perry supporter. we saw rick perry romney fight in the primary. introduced him. and said after to reporters including think progress that mormonism was a cult. that real christians have a real choice in this election. between rick perry presumably
. arguing there is no political mandate. is that true? joining me now, michael graham, a radio host and a columnist with "the boston herald", and julie roginsky, former political adviser to frank lautenberg and a fox news contributor. so the washington times comes out with an editorial that says he has no mandate. they say that he is, pointed out that he's the first president since george washington to be reelected with fewer popular votes than he was in the first term and say he's got no mandate. michael, true? >> uh, it's hard to see the mandate of a campaign that seemed to be focused almost entirely on whether or not the republicans were going to break into your home and steal your feminine hygiene products. so i can't really say he ran on this plan to do x, he's going to get it. but i don't think that means he's a lame duck. he has the power of the presidency, it's a very powerful tool. he's got the media, obviously, very cooperative. so let's just say he's a limping duck might be a better answer. megyn: is -- julie, your thoughts. because the point of the editorial is they say
that my representative, lindsey graham, has rescinded his pledge for the norquist pledge. we have some republicans finally realizing we have to get this deficit under control. if the deficit is doubled, that means george bush's part of the deficit is half. republicans have never wanted to pay their share of the debt he has created. we have to get somebody in there that is going to help pay the deficit. i am middle income. the last payroll deduction i got, i saw $6 more a week on my check. i would rather you take that $6 back and help pay the deficit off. i am tired of this war. bill clinton and george bush start two wars and do not want to fund them. here we are with the mess we have got. guest: i have to tell you, i am tired of people blaming it on bush. at his buddy says bush took us to war and the war is what created all of this debt. bush did not take us to war on his own. democrats voted for that war, too. congress voted for it. you cannot pay it all on george bush. under present obama's term as president, we have accumulated -- he has accumulated 1/3 of our debt, more of -- more
it is not ha fair. lindsey graham -- he and senator chuck schumer have an outline for several years that they will be revising. lindsay grant is pushing a broad bill -- lindsay gramm is pushing a broad bill. mike crapo is another one. the new senator from arizona worked on this issue in the past. then there is john mccain. everything has changed since the election. it was politically not viable and now it has become politically viable. host: this comment by grover norquist from a cbs news story. host: this from nbc news, i apologize. from nebraska.sc caller: thank you for taking my call. latinos when for obama primarily for the immigration issue. you do not think that is narrow minded or the might be other issues that latinos are focusing in. if you would want to discuss those. guest: that is an excellent question. polling shows that what voters care for our jobs and the economy. immigration is either number two or number 3 on their list of things that they care about. it is much higher in places like arizona. it is the number two issue among hispanics. my sense has been that i do n
was being pressured by john mccain, lindsey graham, key people on the hill go faster and the president spent a little more time to make sure that it was consensus when the region resolution from the united nations gave a legitimate say and partners willing to share the burden to get something meaningful done. which was the transition difficult as it is, that it's underway in libya. that's the way the united states prefers to do business. more the we can do that with way. it reinforces our policy and value. that probably is the most meaningful thing we can do in terms of promoting outcomes that have public diplomacy at their heart. >> paul quick. >> you can't do inform they if you don't have the benefit of the doubt of the public policy which is what the world is about. >> let me conclude by asking you a yes or no question. looking forward over the next four years, is there any realistic chance of significant reform to -- reorganization of public policy apparatus, or significant increase in funding? for public diplomacy. >> yes, yes, no. >> which one is the no? >> bbg organization possibly fu
ayotte, and also senator lindsey graham about in gaza. you can follow that live on c-span. also, later today john boehner, the speaker of the house has a news conference coming up. that will be a 5 p.m. eastern. we want to point out here on c-span2 coming up at 1:30 p.m., it will be the first news conference since the election for president obama. we'll have live coverage of that and take a phone call reaction as well. to austin, texas. now let's go to roseville -- i hope i got that right on the republican line. go ahead. >> caller: hi. i would like to say that nancy pelosi means leader, is horrible. she was leader last time. what she says and what she does is two different things. she spoke about when barack obama got elected the first, the first time in 2008, this is all going to be a about jobs, jobs, jobs, and they didn't focus on jobs. they pushed through the health care bill, and then she gets up there all the time. she is nervous, she's family, she's bumbling. she's just going to do what she wants but she doesn't look out for the people. she doesn't care. she just doesn't goes a
. there is another factor for 2014. among those up in 2014, mitch mcconnell, lindsey graham, saxby chambliss -- if you are mitch mcconnell four years ago, but would have had unanimity that theh waas king of republican party in kentucky. there was not a contest for the leader. then 2010, he put every resources could, every attempt to keep randpaul from winning the republican nomination and failed miserably. if you are looking at this from mitch mcconnell's perspective, knowing that several other republicans who ran for senate this time would not promise going in that they would support mitch mcconnell. and you have the potential for a primary challenge in a party you no longer control. your willingness to compromise on some of these critical issues may be itself compromise. if you're john cornyn, you would have stayed out of the race for the republican nominations for the senate this time around but you sat back and watched as the very conservative and powerful lieutenant governor was beaten from one end of the state to the other in the primary by ted cruz because it was a moderate. and you h
in the proposal that senator graham and i laid out in broad structure -- >> 2007 bill. >> yeah. last time. and what happened was, obviously, the other side of the aisle said we're not doing immigration reform. i think they're going to want to do it now. but that's at the top of the list, because the nation demands it, needs it and, again, i think in the exit polls two-thirds of americans basically agreed with the concept of real immigration reform along those lines, you know, wasn't in any detail in an exit poll, but the basic thrust of the question would lead you to belief that they would agree with -- believe that they would owe with that proposal. second thing we have to do both candidates, president obama, governor romney, talked about making us more energy independent. there are a lot of things we can do that might lead to compromise. first, two things have been done by the administration that people forget about, the cafe standards when fully implemented will reduce the need of importing oil for gasoline. isn't that incredible? and the greenhouse gas standards have really changed th
